Was a good option to select a covered boat with the provision of wine and cheese. Enjoyable cruise along the canals of Amsterdam with live commentary in a light hearted manner. Generally. Groups were offered a cheese platter per 2 pax while if you are an individual traveller, you will get a single platter. This is good to minimise sharing of food in view of COVID. However, seatings are not exactly socially distanced but because the boat is not fully occupied, not sure if it is by design, there are still gaps between groups. Maybe better if spacings amongst groups are enforced. Our cups are regularly topped up so you will definitely have your fill. Would definitely recommend for a lazy afternoon along the picturesque canals.

Everyone was super friendly! Captain was great and the guided tour was engaging! Kept the cheese and wine flowing!

Very nice people, good cheese and lots of wine. Price-performance ratio is definitely right! Gladly again!

We enjoyed our time. They did a great job. Wod recommend the experience to others.

Beautiful boat and the hospitality from staff was 100%
